New ventures in hemp

Hemp was historically grown in this area where the fibres were used in the manufacture of rope, fishing nets and sails. At Kinblethmont we have joined a group of farmers planting a Finnish variety of hemp for its seeds which, when processed produce a delicious oil.

Hemp is also a great crop for the environment. Its large amount of leafy vegetation soak up lots of Carbon dioxide and takes it down deep into the soil with its long roots.
